6:30 am
this is a for every issue. -- a forever issue. if eat palo alto -- east palo alto was successful, i think we would be very sympathetic to that. and part of what option 5 does is it keeps in place the incentive to do that.
6:31 am
this would basically say that if there are adjustments, is that those changes would be affected on the supply. the allocation, as well. bulls customers are approaching their water supply situation very serious. they are approaching conversation -- conservation measures aggressively. the targets they have to be are tougher than the targets we have
6:32 am
to meet. they are already doing that. there are a couple of amendments of would propose to make, to effectuate that. i will hold those. president vietor: thank you. i, for one, appreciate your comments, particularly in regards to east palo alto.
6:33 am
if we do proceed with option 5 and with the market transfer arrangement. i just from my environmental conservation seat, i also hope that there was a change in the guarantees as a result of the market transfer arrangement or option five. there would be a high value placed on water conservation and per-capita use, because i think it is something that east palo alto has been doing and should be awarded for. this is in regards to the recognition we want to give east palo alto. i also want to a knowledge everyone for their conservation efforts, and what they have been doing, because it looks like we might be in pretty good shape as far as 2018 goes. the real issue is going to be
6:34 am
2018 on, and started to think about that and looking at what that is going to be for all of us, but i just want to acknowledge the good work that has been done and staff, as well, in presenting the options. i think it really has been quite remarkable, and a lot of that has been because of the input of the customers and the back and forth and the dialogue, and it is really great to be able to have that input into the government process and the decision making body like this, so i just want to recognize that, because it has worked well in the situation to really try and see all of the ways this very complicated pi could be carved up. -- pie could be carved up. if there are no other comments, perhaps we can entertain a motion that commissioner moran had? commissioner: there is one that
6:35 am
is not a component. >> city attorney's office. i think you should do this. commissioner: then i will do that. it would be resolved with an individual supply guarantee. this is also pursuant to a
6:36 am
certain section of the code. president vietor: so is there a motion to adopt? thank you. any further public comment on this item? hearing none, all of those in favor? commissioner: i would like to have the motion restated and an explanation. president vietor: maybe the commission secretary can do that, unless, mr. moran, you are comfortable? commissioner moran: what was distributed to the calendar, amended in three respects, one dealing with option 5, the second to delete a final resolved clause, and then
6:37 am
there's the isg transfer. commissioner: that would help east palo alto? commissioner moran: it does not help them today, but, frankly, that problem is been there for decades. president vietor: but i think in that light, the record should state the conversation we have had in regards to east palo alto and the acknowledgement that there may be other equity issues involved. so i will call the vote. all of those in favor? opposed? the motion carried. thank you, commissioners, and think you all for coming to speak. we appreciate it. mr. secretary, next item, please. secretary housh: madam president, item number 11, a discussion and possible action
